Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: What Do You Like About The 80's ?

I like many years from the 80's and there was some great stuff put out early in the decade, I am not a Brent basher but I enjoy Pig and Keith better. All bands change as they get older and that was the case with the dead, their sound changed in the 80's (midi, brent, new songs etc.) which was fine. I do enjoy listening to many of the 80 years 80-84 and then 86 personally, just like I will listen to some of the 90's shows and attended some of them. Even though some were bad I enjoyed it and left with a smile because it was what it was, I knew it was not the golden years but if they were playing I was trying to go if I could. It is hard to bring anything new to the table in this discussion because so many have done that very eloquently and I echo many of the sentiments. I like the 80's, it is how I got into the band but then I met a trader and started collecting and listening to many of the golden year shows and was f'n blown away, so I choose to listen to those shows more so than the 80's-90's shows but there are some great shows done there and I do try to listen to as many as I can because the 80's were the tractor beam (sorry for the bad star wars pun) that sucked me into the band
